What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a natural system of medicine which gives relief from suffering for millions of people in nearly every country in the world. It is a therapy based on the practice of treating like with like.
HOMEOPATHY is derived from the Greek word HOMIOS, meaning like or similar. Homeopathy is concerned with the treatment of the whole person. as an individual rather than treating the disease alone. For this reason, people or pets with the same disease may often be treated with different medicines -
Homeopathy- is also used effectively in dental treatment, and in conjunction with other therapies. such as acupuncture and chiropractic.
Homeopathy has a significant role in both curative and preventative medicine.
Is Homeopathy a New Therapy?
Homeopathy is a well established healing system. Known to the ancient Greeks, the modern system of homeopathy was introduced by a brilliant German physician, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, in the nineteenth century.
Appalled by the barbaric medical practices of his day, he sought a more humane alternative. In his experiments, he took massive doses of Cinchona, a drug used for the treatment of malaria. To his surprise, he found that he developed symptoms similar to malaria. From this observation he developed the basic principle of homeopathy.
Today homeopathy is well accepted as a safe and effective, alternative form of medical treatment.
How Does Homeopathy Work?
Homeopathy is a healing process in which the medicines stimulate and encourage the body's natural healing forces of recovery.
The homeopathic principle of treating like with like is based on treating an illness with a substance that produces in a healthy person similar symptoms to those experienced by the sick person. Conventional medicine believes that symptoms are caused by the illness, whereas homeopathy sees the symptoms as the body's natural reaction in fighting the illness, and seeks to stimulate them rather than suppress them. For example, Ipecacuanha (from the root of the plant) if taken by a healthy person will cause vomiting, but if taken in tiny homeopathic doses will cure vomiting.
Homeopathic medicines contain very, very small quantities of the substances called POTENCIES, prepared in a special way. These high dilutions not only enhance their curative properties, but avoid undesirable side effects.
Is Homeopathy Safe?
Homeopathic medicines are completely safe with no unwanted side effects and they are non-addictive. They are safe for babies, children and the elderly people.
What Are Homeopathic Medicines Like?
There are more than 2,000 homeopathic medicines. They look the same as any other medicines, although they are totally different in their preparation and action.
They are usually presented in the form of granules, tablets or liquids, all prepared in modern laboratories in scientific conditions to the highest quality standards. They are prepared from pure, natural animal, vegetable or mineral substances that are listed in the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States.
Granules and tablets are sweet tasting and they dissolve easily.
The frequency of the dose and the potency of the medicine may vary according to the type of condition. The potency of the medicine is denoted by a number which follows it's name. For example, Arnica 6x or Cantharis 3Ox. Dosing should be stopped when the condition is cleared.
Avoid handling the granules to prevent contamination, Tip them into the cap of the container or use a clean spoon.
Keep the medicines in a cool, dark place away from strong smelling substance. and they will remain effective for several years.
Isotherapy is a procedure, a technique, a specialized application of homeopathic theory and therapy. A homeopathic remedy is prepared from the blood of the patient in the same manner of potentisation (dilutions) as regular homeopathic medicine. In a compromised immune system like a cat with Feline Leukemia the body's own defense mechanism is stimulated by Isotherapy. In allergies the hyperimmune reaction is reduced by Isotherapy. Isotherapy is often used as an adjunct, and in addition, to standard homeopathic medication.
The following descriptions are various problems treated by Isotherapy and its degree of success. The physicians caseload included 947 cases using Isotherapy as the sole medication.
In 235 cases of colds, sore throats, ear infections and bronchitis;
143 were treated with very good results,
43 with good results,
49 with no change.
Acute and Subacute infections;
In 111 cases,
66 were very successful 23 good 22 no change.
Illnesses of the intestinal tract;
13 infants suffering from infectious diarrhea. 8 improved rapidly, 2 improved satisfactorily.
57 children with colic were treated, 44
became free of painful attacks 8 improved.
illness on a predominately Allergic Basis;
In 92 cases, 54 had very good results, 26 were good 12 had no change.
Skin Diseases, allergic as well as non allergic conditions were treated very successfully, including eczema, urticaria, pyaderma, psoriaris and warts.
Diseases of the nervous system were successfully treated if the underlying cause was of an organic nature, rather than psychological. This also included reactions to vaccinations, allopathic medicine and poisoning.
In conclusion, Isotherapy can bring about improvement or healing in many cases. It is especially indicated in infectious diseases and in allergies. Generally, in acute situations, like kennel cough, more frequent doses are needed, Chronic problems like allergies require less frequent dosing but with increasing potencies over longer periods. Nevertheless, the potentised blood, Isotherapy, is specific medicine for the individuals immune condition without lengthy determination of the causative agent.
